  • Blount ran seven times for just 12 yards and caught both passes directed his way for 11 more yards during Sunday's 43-35 win against the Rams. The contest marked the second straight game in which Blount was only on the field for 15 or fewer snaps, and this time it was far fewer than the 27 seen by Corey Clement or 43 for Jay Ajayi. Seven of Blount's touches came in the first half, but in the second half, Philadelphia turned primarily to Ajayi, who was far more effective with the ball. It will be tough to rely on Blount for fantasy production in spite of another favorable matchup Week 15 against the Giants.

  • Eagles' LeGarrette Blount: Only gets 14 snaps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount only logged 14 snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Seahawks, taking eight carries for 26 yards. With the Eagles playing from behind for most of the night, Jay Ajayi (31 snaps) and Corey Clement (28) both dwarfed Blount in terms of playing time. It partially seemed to be a product of the Eagles seeking to expand Ajayi's role, but the bigger factor was game context in combination with Blount's lack of pass-catching/blocking skill. The 250-pounder could still have some busy afternoon when the Eagles are able to mount leads, but a Week 14 road game against the Rams isn't exactly a prime bounce-back spot. The workload split still needs to be monitored on a weekly basis in this three-headed Philadelphia backfield.

  • Blount took 15 carries for 97 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-3 win over the Bears. Blount coughed the ball up at the end of a 35-yard gain in the first quarter, but he returned to take the next carry and stayed involved through the end of the game. Jay Ajayi had five carries for 26 yards and also fumbled at the end of his longest run, while Corey Clement chipped in with 27 yards on four totes and Kenjon Barner drew a target. There weren't any goal-line opportunities, as Carson Wentz threw touchdown passes from 17, 15 and eight yards out. Blount will enter a Week 13 road matchup with the Seahawks having comfortably led the Philadelphia backfield in carries and touches in back-to-back games.

  • Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Sunday's 37-9 trouncing of the Cowboys. Blount led the Eagles backfield in touches and was one of three ball carriers to rush for at least 50 yards in the game, along with Corey Clement (50) and Jay Ajayi (91). However, it took the burly back as many carries as the other two combined to reach his total. If Clement continues to emerge and Ajayi learns more of the playbook, it stands to reason that Blount will begin to lose touches if he cannot prove himself a more effective runner.

  • Eagles' LeGarrette Blount: Held to 37 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries in Sunday's 51-23 romp of Denver. Sunday's game snapped Blount's six-game streak of at least a dozen carries. Part of that can be attributed to Philly incorporating some of its lesser-used backs while nursing a multi-score lead for much of the game, but there should be some concern that trade acquistion Jay Ajayi saw just one fewer touch and ran for more yardage on his touchdown rush than Blount had in the entire game. Blount is not scoring at anywhere near the pace that he did in New England last season, and he now figures to see a reduction in usage in what has suddenly become a very crowded Eagles backfield.
